Arts Express: Neo-Nazis In The Hood, Homeless Foreclosure Broken Dreams




NEO-NAZI MIDDLE AMERICA TOWN TAKEOVER DOC, MONTENEGRO ON SCREEN AND EURO-MASS STRUGGLES, CROSS-GENERATIONAL MOVEMENT POETS, FATAL ATTRACTION AND THE SHADOW KNOWS

**Welcome To Leith: The too hot to handle doc details perhaps US exceptionalism domestically come home to roost, as North Dakota neo-nazis scheme somewhat legally to invade and occupy this town and drive out the locals. While ironically the controversial film has had a tougher struggle finding its own home in theaters. A commentary.

**Poetry Corner: Young Haitian-American movement poet Richard Renelique reads from his work touching on identity, social transformation and 'too many bullets on the television screen.'
And, Deep South labor organizer and seasoned people's poet Stewart Acuff delves into so-called right-to-work resistance, homeless foreclosure broken dreams, and 'families on the peanut butter and baloney plan.'
